Already in recent years, Serbia has been dealing with the issue of mandatory electronic invoicing. On 29.04.2021, Law No. 44/2021 was passed, which, in addition to the framework for an invoicing system, regulates the issuance, transmission, receipt, processing, storage and content of electronic invoices.
The invoicing system
The Serbian Ministry of Finance has now developed the "Sistema E-Faktura" (SEF) platform, which is used for receiving, sending and archiving invoices. With this new platform, Serbia has a continuous transaction control, CTC for short, which is intended to put a stop to tax fraud and close gaps in the collection of taxes.
The introduction of electronic invoicing has been implemented by Serbia in three stages over the past few months:
Since 01.05.2022, suppliers of the public sector have to transmit invoices electronically. The Serbian government has since been able to receive and store these invoices.
Since 01.07.2022, public institutions are obliged to send invoices electronically to companies. These must be able to receive and process the invoices.
Since 01.01.2023, electronic invoicing has been extended to the entire business-to-business (B2B) sector on a mandatory basis.
